Libya unrest: Benghazi doctor says 'it's a massacre'

Dozens of people were killed when Libyan troops used heavy weapons during a funeral procession amid unrest in Benghazi, a doctor in the city has said.

The woman who called herself Brayka told the BBC that at least 45 bodies and 900 wounded had been brought to just one hospital on Saturday.

She described the scene as a "massacre" and said it was increasingly difficult for hospitals "to handle all the injured people".

The amateur video accompanying this interview purportedly shows unrest in several Libyan towns and cities.
